Gritters setting out to prepare the roads for snow

With snow falling in parts of Surrey, a fleet of gritters has been out spreading salt on the county’s roads.

Any residents affected can find information and advice on the council’s website

They can also get traffic updates on the BBC’s website while the county council is running a twitter feed to provide information on gritting activity.

If the snow is heavy enough, Surrey’s gritters will be joined by an army of 51 farmers equipped with spreaders and ploughs and Surrey 4 x 4 Response.

Individual schools make their own decisions to open or close and parents should contact their child’s school directly or visit its website for information.

All school closures will be confirmed on the county council’s website, along with any county council building closures or disruption to library services.

Details about school transportbus services can also be found on the county council’s website.

The council stockpiled 16,000 tonnes of salt before the winter to treat roads across the county and the council’s 1,800 grit bins were filled.

Social workers are standing by to visit vulnerable people to make sure they are safe and residents are asked to check on neighbours, friends and family.
